    Motorbike transfer to my name... What documents needed?

    I have just bought a motorbike from a friend and need to get the registration transferred over to my name.... What documents do I need from him?

    I am guessing that the blue book, signed copies of his passport, work permit, visa?

    Does it require a residency certificate from both of us?

    Thanks in advance.

    (May have been discussed before on here but I couldn't be arsed searching through the archives)

    Yes, you both require a Residency Letter...... used to be you could get 'em from Immigration for a few hundred baht, now (Chiang Mai at least) they've stopped doing 'em and you have to get one from your Consulate, and the good old Brit Consulate charges 2,500 baht!
    You also both need to sign the Thai Vehicle Owner Transfer form..... you can download it.
    And the seller needs to sign the Green reg book....... but you knew that!
    Plus...... a dozen passport photos of varying sizes as you don't know which copper is gonna process your application....... maybe one likes 2 x 2, maybe one insists on 1 x 1...... maybe one's cousin runs the photo booth...... you know the score!

    ^ hmmm, I've bought and sold several dozen vehicles here in Thailand in about a half dozen different provinces and have never needed to supply a passport picture...

    Buyer will need a work permit OR a residency letter from Immigration OR a Tabien Baan OR a residency letter from embassy/consulate.

    Seller requirements vary from one Land Transport Office to the next, so best to check ahead of time. Also, requirements are different depending on if the seller is Thai national or foreigner. Thai National only needs to show Thai ID card. Foreigner usually must supply signed copy of passport and valid visa. Recently had an issue in CNX where the LT office there wanted a residency letter from the seller. That was odd, never encountered that at any other LT office.

    Then again, the silly skirt there told me there was no way to transfer ownership of a trailer because trailers don't have registration books or plates. She was none too happy when I showed her the rego book and road tax receipt for my trailer and told her she had no idea what she was talking about

    TiT, vehicle transfers are normally very easy, but always expect the unexpected

    Not the Blue Book but the Tabien Baan Leung - Yellow Book, gives the Farang ability to transfer titles, take out contracts in his own name.
